Western Bristlebird, Western Spinebill, White-breasted Robin and Red-eared Firetail should all be found within close walking distance of the caravan park along with Brown Quail, Brush Bronzewing and Little Wattlebird. Short-billed Black-Cockatoo, Long-billed Black-Cockatoo and Western Whipbird are all very likely, and Western Rosella is a chance. More

Further, the range of the Western Bristlebird is very restricted near the southwest corner of Australia, just as is the range of the endangered Noisy Scrub-bird Atrichornis clamosus. Bristlebirds are hard to observe but can be located and tracked by their distinctive vocalizations, and they are not necessarily shy. If one gets 'inside' the habitat, successful viewing can follow.

Western Whipbird, Western Bristlebird and Noisy Scrub-bird so that you know what and where to look for them. However, the playing of tapes to attract birds at Two People's Bay is off limits as it makes it harder for censuses and other scientific studies to be taken of the threatened species. If you really want to see the three species, then I strongly recommend a tour with Simon Nevill of Falcon Tours. More

to see the Western Bristlebird in the top of a very low bush or in the base of a mallee tree. They tend to call in bursts about 10 minutes or so apart so you need to be very patient.
